chopped edge

On a _smaller screen_, do
$ HOME=/tmp firefox & #I.e., totally vanilla Firefox
now scroll horizontally ("↓" in attachment), notice the truncated edge revealed (oval marked).
Same problem  in Google chromium browser too!

Alas the only way to read such pages on smaller computers such as the EEEPC is to turn off styles via View>Paeg Style. One worries about other browsers where the user cannot even do that.
Anyway, why can't a default Firefox installation deal with this better even if it is the page's fault?, line 167:
.container, #nav-contain, #header-contain, #banners-contain, #content-contain-main, #profile-contain-main, #profile-contain, #footer-contain { width: 970px; clear: both; overflow: hidden; margin: 0 auto; }

The content is clipped because that's what the author specified.
Removing "overflow: hidden;" in the above rule might fix it...

Of course not. Plus that is the last time I ever attempt to contact individual sites! Thanks anyway.
(Staffed? Staff knows what I am talking about? Staff is responsible for design? Staff knows who is responsible for design? Staff knows what package they are using? ... No more contacting site owners for me!)

Well trying the site again shows that it is only half a character truncated, and only on some lines. So maybe I am too pushy, and the bug should be closed.
